This super easy 30-minute Wonton Soup with Shrimp tastes a lot like P.F. Chang’s” Wonton Soup recipe but there is one difference… it is by far better!
The flavors in this Wonton Soup are deliciously simple and light. This soup is definitely high on the flavor meter despite is being low in calories and surprisingly low in carbohydrates. Trader Joe’s Chicken Cilantro Mini Wonton has 50 calories and 9 grams of carbs for four!!!! And maybe the best part…it’s done in 30 minutes or less!!
